Has anyone taken gabapentin & what side effects did you have

I'm on a new pill called Gabapentin 100 mg for nerve pain. I am always scared of new pills bc of all my stomach issues & constipation.
Any feedback would be appreciated Thanks

I took gabapentin as well for the pain and had no issues with it. Not even side effects. But everyone is different. I started with one at bed time as that was when most of my pelvic pain would hit then increased it so needed. No more the 3 in a 24 hour period. This helped me alot and I took it with ibuprofen 800mg. The combination of the 2 medications helped me alot. Even after I came home from the hospital for a hysterectomy I took that before taking the actual pain medication.

Good luck and hope it helps with your pain.

I have been on a very high dosage Gabapentin for years and it made my hands arthritic to the point they though I had RA. I eventually got off of it and my hands are fine now. Lots of scary info out there on Gabapentin

It depends how many a day you take & what the dosage is. What dose did you take?. I am on the lowest 100 mg & it is not helping & will have to up it but am waiting till after the blood test bc I want to see if the meds have anything to do with my bad blood test.

I’ve taken gabapentin and actually still do! It definitely helps me with leg pain and releases some of the back pain too. I don’t notice any side effects.
